Available from 1 June 2016
Back
  1. How this Agreement works

    1.1     This Agreement (including your FiT Plan and any appendices) is between you and us. It’s important for you to read it carefully so you understand exactly how it works.

    1.2     If these Terms and Conditions ever contradict your FiT Plan, these Terms and Conditions will take priority.

    1.3     The Agreement will start from the date we get your signed and dated FiT Plan.

    1.4     You’ll need to confirm a few statements as part of this Agreement. (See Appendix 1 near the end of this document.) You qualify for FiT Payments only as long as these things are true. So if something changes in future to make these statements untrue, you’ll need to let us know straight away.

    1.5     In Appendix 2, you can see all the promises we make to you as part of this Agreement. This explains all the things we will and won’t do as your FiT Licensee.

    1.6     In Appendix 3, you’ll see the definitions for the terms used in this document.

  2. Your involvement in the Feed-in Tariff (FiT) scheme

    2.1     We’ll accept applications only for Generation Unit(s) where we (or a non-mandatory FiT Licensee) supply electricity, or a Generation Unit(s) that’s not connected to the Electricity Network.

    2.2     We won’t pay you any FiT Payments until you’ve accepted this Agreement, satisfied the eligibility criteria set out in Clause 3 and confirmed that everything in Appendix 1 is true.

    2.3     This Agreement is entirely separate from any other supply contract for gas and electricity you may hold with us. It has no effect on the rights and obligations under those contracts.

    2.4     This Agreement relates solely to the Generation Unit(s) specified in your FiT Plan.

    2.5     Any FiT Payment you get under this Agreement is based on rates the Authority sets and publishes. These rates may change at any time.

    2.5    The UK Government runs the FiT scheme, so if the Government changes a policy, the terms of this Agreement may change too. We’ll try to let you know in writing before any change. If this isn’t possible, we’ll let you know as soon after the change as we can.

  3. Qualifying for the FiT scheme

    3.1     Your Generation Unit(s) may qualify for the FiT scheme with us if all of these things are true:

    3.1.1        Your Generation Unit(s) has a total installed capacity of no more than 5MW for solar photovoltaic, wind, hydro or anaerobic digestion and no more than 2kW for CHP.

    3.1.2        Your Generation Unit(s) has the necessary Accreditation.

    3.1.3        A Qualified Person has installed and Commissioned your Generation Unit(s).

    3.1.4        A Generation Meter(s) measures the electricity your Generation Unit(s) generate.

    3.1.5        You haven’t registered your Generation Unit(s) to get Generation Payments from any other FiT Licensee.

    3.1.6        You haven’t registered your Generation Unit(s) for the Renewable Obligation Certification Scheme (ROCs).

    3.1.7        You’ve given us a written request for MCS-certified registration, along with a valid MCS Certificate for the Generation Unit(s), or you’ve given us details of your ROO-FiT Accreditation number from the Authority.

    3.2     You haven’t had any grants (which can include, but aren’t limited to, funds from: UK Government departments, local and regional councils, European Governments, The National Lottery or organisations distributing money on behalf of the Government or EU, such as Energy Saving Trust) to purchase or install the Generation Unit(s), unless:

    3.2.1        you’ve given us evidence that you’ve repaid the grant in full, or

    3.2.2        the Authority classes the grant as exempt.

    3.3     To find out more about the documents we need to support your application, visit https://www.eonenergy.com/for-your-home/products-and-services/feed-in-tariffs or call us on 0345 301 4884.

    3.4     You understand you can’t get FiT Export Payments or Deemed Export Payments if your Generation Unit(s) isn’t connected to the Electricity Network.

    3.5     If you’re getting a grant and you want to claim FiT Payments under the ‘de minimis commission’ regulation using a Generation Unit(s) that isn’t connected to the Electricity Network – you confirm you’re not using your Generation Unit(s) to make money or selling any of the electricity it generates.

    3.6     If your Generation Unit(s) is on a site you don’t own, you’ll need to:

    3.6.1        give us evidence to show you have a legitimate right to claim FiT Payments

    3.6.2        give us proof that the site owner agrees to share their contact details with us and that the site owner agrees to give us (or our representatives) safe and reasonable access to your Generation Meter(s) on request.

  4. Eligibility Date and Period

    4.1     For Generation Unit(s) with an MCS Certificate issued pre 15 January 2016 your Eligibility Date will be whichever of these dates is later:

    4.1.1   the date the Authority accepted the written request for ROO-FiT Accreditation

    4.1.2   the date we received your written request for MCS-certified registration, along with a valid MCS Certificate for your Generation Unit(s).

    4.1.3 the date a Qualified Person commissioned your Generation Unit(s)

    4.1.4   the launch of the FiT scheme (1 April 2010).

    4.1.5   if we do not receive a written request by 31st March 2016 you will not be eligible for FiT Payments

    4.2   For Generation Unit(s) with an MCS Certificate issued on or after the 15 January 2016 your Eligibility Date will be whichever of these dates is later:

    4.2.1 the date the Authority received your written request for ROO-FiT Accreditation and is accepted

    4.2.2 the date we received your written request for MCS-certified registration, along with a valid MCS Certificate for the Generation Unit(s) or the Tariff Date as shown in your FiT Plan.

    4.3     Each Generation Unit(s) qualifies for the FiT scheme only for the period set out in your FiT Plan.

    4.4     You must give us a Meter Reading on your Eligibility Date to get FiT Payments for your entire eligibility period (as explained in your FiT Plan). If you don’t give us a Meter Reading on your Eligibility Date, we’ll delay your FiT Payments and start them only after you’ve given us a Valid Meter Reading.

    4.5     If you qualify for FiT Payments before the start of this Agreement and you weren’t registered to get FiT Payments from someone else for that period, we’ll treat that period as part of this Agreement.

  5. Meter Readings

    5.1     You must have a Generation Meter(s) or Export Meter(s) (or both) that’s positioned somewhere safe and easily accessible.

    5.2     You must take Meter Readings from your meters and send them to us using the contact details in your FiT Plan. You must give us your Meter Readings within your Reading Window and then every quarter in future. It’s your responsibility to take correct Meter Readings.

    5.3     If your Generation Tariff or Export Tariff changes at any time, you should take a Meter Reading on the same date. You should then give us the Meter Reading in your next Reading Window, together with your normal quarterly Meter Reading. If you don’t do this, we’ll estimate the Meter Reading for the date the change happened. Tariff rates can change at any time, so you should regularly review the Authority’s website to understand if any changes affect you.

    5.4     If you don’t give us a Valid Meter Reading as required, we won’t pay your FiT Payment for that quarter – we’ll carry it over until the next quarter for which you give us a Valid Meter Reading.

  6. FiT Payments

    6.1     We’ll give you FiT Payments quarterly, but only if you give us a Valid Meter Reading within the Reading Window. We’ll do everything we can to pay you within ten Working Days after we get your Valid Meter Reading.

    6.2     Your Generation Tariffs or Export Tariffs are RPI-linked and the Secretary of State may change them annually. The Secretary of State could change the Generation Tariff or Export Tariff at any point. If this happens, you’ll see these changes reflected in your next payment statement after the tariff change.

    6.3     If the Authority tells us you’ve been suspended or removed from the Central FiT Register, we’ll stop your FiT Payments. We’ll only continue paying you once the Authority, after lifting your suspension, tells us to.

    6.4     We reserve the right to reduce, withhold or recover FiT Payments if it has been identified that you, we or the Authority have made an error in relation to the FiT scheme, FiT Payments made or if the Authority has identified an abuse of the scheme.

    6.5     For details about the VAT treatment of FiT payments, please see Clause 9.

  7. Exports

    This Clause will only apply if your Generation Unit(s) is connected to the Electricity Network and it is practical to measure the amount of electricity exported. If you do have an Export Meter(s) installed, you must inform us immediately.

    7.1     If you want to get Export Payments, you must have an Export Meter(s) fitted.

    7.2     On the Anniversary Date of your Eligibility Date.

    7.2.1   if you’re getting Export Payments from us you can:

    7.2.1.1 opt out of getting Export Payments from us (you may then have the option to take Export Payments from another supplier under a PPA agreement).

    7.2.2   If you’re not getting Export Payments from us you may:

    7.2.2.1 opt in to get Export Payments from us.

    7.3     Following your first Anniversary Date, you can opt in or opt out of getting Export Payments from us at any time, but no more than once in a 12-month period.

    7.4     If you opt out of getting Export Payments from us, we’ll stop them, effective from the date you requested it, as long as it doesn’t mean we have to backdate. To make sure we pay you the right amount, you’ll need to give us a Valid Meter Reading. We’ll contact you before this date to ask about your needs for the following year. We’ll make Export Payments only when you’ve sent us a Valid Meter Reading within your Reading Window.

  8. Deemed Exports

    This Clause will apply only if it is not possible or practical to measure the amount of electricity your Generation Unit(s) is exporting to the Electricity Network and you tell us you want to be paid for exporting electricity to the Electricity Network.

    8.1     You can get Deemed Export Payments if all three of these things are true – your Generation Unit(s):

    8.1.1        doesn’t have an Export Meter(s) or it is not possible or practical to measure the amount of electricity being exported to the Electricity Network.

    8.1.2        is connected to the Electricity Network

    8.1.3        has an installed capacity of 30kW or below.

    8.2    We calculate Deemed Export Payments by a percentage, which the Secretary of State determines and publishes no less than a month before the beginning of each FiT year (1st April). The Secretary of State may change these percentages at any time. Any changes will take effect in your next payment statement.

    8.3    We’ll make Deemed Export Payments only when you’ve given us a Valid Meter Reading from your Generation Meter(s) within your Reading Window. Without these Meter Readings we can’t determine what volume of Deemed Export you qualify to get FiT Payments for.

  9. VAT

    9.1     Generation Payments we give you are outside the scope of VAT.

    9.2     If you’re not VAT registered, all Export Payments and Deemed Export Payments will be exclusive of VAT. Sub clauses 9.3-9.6 do not apply.

    9.3     If you’re registered for VAT, you agree to sign a self-billing agreement form that lets us (if we agree to) produce self-billed invoices for your Export Payments or Deemed Export Payments. This means you agree not to issue any VAT or other invoices for Export Payments or Deemed Export Payments due under the FiT scheme.

    9.4     You must give us your VAT registration number and agree to tell us immediately if your VAT number changes or if you stop being VAT registered.

    9.5     You agree to tell us immediately if you transfer your business as a going concern – in whole or in part.

    9.6     When you accept self-billing, we’ll calculate the VAT and give you a compliant self-billing invoice, which you’ll need to complete your VAT return. You’re then responsible for declaring and paying the VAT shown on the self-billing invoice to HMRC on the due dates. We won’t be held responsible for you not declaring the VAT shown on the self-billed invoice as your output tax at the correct time.

  10. Metering

    10.1     If we think your Generation Meter(s) is faulty, we might test it. We might withhold your FiT Payments until the test is completed. If the test confirms your meter isn’t working properly you must arrange for the meter to be replaced as soon as reasonably possible. You won’t qualify for any more FiT Payments until this is done. It’s your responsibility to arrange and pay for any replacement Generation Meter(s), as well as any costs for installing it.

    10.2     If your Generation Meter(s) or Export Meter(s) is broken or the screen isn’t readable, you must tell us immediately. You’ll qualify for FiT Payments only up until the last actual known Meter Reading. You’re responsible for getting the Generation Meter(s) replaced as soon as reasonably possible. You won’t qualify for any more FiT Payments until this is done. It’s your responsibility to arrange and pay for any replacement Generation Meter(s), as well as any costs for installing it.

    10.3    If your Generation Meter(s) or Export Meter(s) can record Meter Readings automatically, you may qualify for FiT Payments based on these Meter Readings. This is at our discretion and you’re still responsible for arranging for the Generation Meter(s) to be replaced (if it’s broken) as soon as reasonably possible. You may not qualify for any more FiT Payments until you’ve done this. It’s your responsibility to arrange and pay for any replacement Generation Meter(s), as well as any costs for installing it. If an energy supplier has fitted the Export Meter(s), your current energy supplier may be responsible for those costs. If you’ve fitted the Export Meter(s), or arranged for an installer to fit it, you’ll be responsible for all the associated costs.

  11. Automatic Meter Reading (AMR)

    11.1     Your Generation Meter(s) and/or Export Meter(s) will be classed as non-AMR unless we say otherwise (based on Clause 11.3 below).

    11.2     If your meter is an Export Meter(s) registered pursuant to the BSC, we’ll automatically class it as AMR compliant.

    11.3     If you think your Generation Meter(s) and/or Export Meter(s) has AMR capability and you want us to class it as AMR, tell as soon as possible.

    11.4     For your Generation Meter(s) or Export Meter(s) to be classed as AMR, we must be satisfied that it meets the Authority’s requirements. To help us to do this, you must give us all reasonable information we ask for.

    11.5     If you don’t give us the information we need in a reasonable time, we’ll class your Generation Meter(s) and/or Export Meter(s) as non-AMR.

  12. Your Key Obligations

    12.1     You must ensure that we (or our representatives) have safe and reasonable access to your Generation Meter(s) or Export Meter(s) on request. If we are unable to gain safe and reasonable access to your Site, we may stop your FiT Payments.

    12.2     We need to verify your Meter Readings at least once every two years

    12.3     If your Generation Meter(s) and/or Export Meter(s) is non-AMR we’ll physically check it at least once every two years to verify the Meter Readings.

    12.4     If your Generation Meter(s) or Export Meter(s) is AMR capable, we’ll do one of these things at least every two years to verify the Meter Readings:

    12.4.1 Method 1: Physically read your Generation Meter(s) and/or Export Meter(s)

    12.4.2 Method 2; Use historical data to verify the Meter Readings you give us

    12.4.3 Method 3: Audit your system

    12.5     These methods for both AMR and non AMR are instructed by the Authority and are subject to change, in the event of such a change we will notify you.

    12.6     If you have 25 Generation Unit(s) or more which are AMR capable we’ll physically check 5% of the total number of Generation Meter(s) or Export Meter(s) readings (that we’d otherwise use Method 2 or Method 3 for).

    12.7     If you have 24 Generation Unit(s) or less which are AMR capable we might physically read your Generation Meter(s) or Export Meter(s) (that we would’ve otherwise used Method 2 or Method 3 for). This is based on the Authority’s sampling rules.

    12.8     You must keep all documentation that relates to the FiT scheme for a minimum of one year – even if you leave the FiT scheme, switch FiT Licensee or transfer your Generation Unit(s) to another person. This includes details of all Meter Readings and all FiT Payments you’ve had.

    12.9     If we find any of the information you’ve given us is incorrect or we can’t inspect your Generation Meter(s) or Export Meter(s), we may tell the Authority, who will take any appropriate action. In this event, we may stop, adjust or recover your FiT Payments accordingly.

    12.10  You must tell us if you become the owner or Nominated Recipient or are a Connected Person of 25 or more Generation Unit(s).

    12.11  You must tell us immediately if you have an Export Meter(s) installed.

    12.12  You must tell us immediately if you install a battery or storage device to collect and store the electricity your Generation Unit(s) generates. We’ll then ask you to give us more information, which you must give us within ten Working Days. We’ll then determine whether or not the battery or storage device is compliant with FiT scheme rules and acceptable to the Authority. If the battery or storage device doesn’t comply, for any period, with FiT Scheme Rules, you may not qualify to get FiT Payments until it’s rectified.

  13. Changes of Ownership, Assignment of Rights and Nominated Recipients

    13.1     We’ll make FiT Payments only to the person named on the Central FiT Register as the Generator unless you’ve given us a Nominated Recipient.

    13.2     If you’re planning to transfer ownership of your Generation Unit(s) or make a change to the Nominated Recipient, you must contact us to ask for a Transfer Form. When you’ve completed, signed, dated and returned the form to us, along with the requested documentation, we’ll arrange for the Authority to update the Central FiT Register. We’ll then write to you and the new Generation Unit(s) owner to confirm the Authority has changed it. You must tell us as soon as reasonably possible before the planned change of ownership and give the relevant Meter Readings on the date of the change. We’ll continue making FiT Payments to the person (or their Nominated Recipient) as named on the Central FiT Register.

    13.3     If you want us to pay your Nominated Recipient you’ll still be responsible for the Generation Unit(s) and responsible to the obligations under this Agreement. It’s your responsibility to give us Valid Meter Readings, as per Clause 5, for the Nominated Recipient to get regular FiT Payments.

    13.4     If you’ve taken over ownership of a Generation Unit(s) that’s already registered on the Central FiT Register, you’ll get FiT Payments only for the time it qualifies. Before we can make any FiT Payments, you must agree to the Terms and Conditions of this Agreement, and then sign and date your FiT Plan.

  14. Switching FiT Licensee

    14.1     You can arrange to switch FiT Licensees at any time, as long as it doesn’t require us to act retrospectively and you qualify for the scheme (and for your new FiT Licensee’s scheme). It’s your responsibility to make sure you meet all the requirements your new FiT Licensee sets out.

    14.2     Once you tell us you want to switch, we’ll take all reasonable steps to agree your Switch Date and get Generation Meter(s) Readings and/or Export Meter(s) Readings as of that Switch Date. If you’re leaving us we’ll make your FiT Payments up to the agreed Switch Date.

    14.3     If you have more than one Generation Unit(s) sharing the same meter, you’ll need to switch all the Generation Unit(s) at the same time to the same FiT Licensee.

    14.4     If you’re leaving us, your new FiT Licensee will be responsible for paying you from your agreed Switch Date.

    14.5    If there’s just cause for us not to consent to the switch we may reject it. We’ll tell you if this is the case and work with you to sort out any issues where possible.

  15. Changes to your Generation Unit(s) including Decommissioning

    15.1     You must tell us if you make any changes to your existing Generation Unit(s), including but not limited to extensions Commissioned before the 15th January 2016 or reductions in your installation – as this could disqualify you from the FiT scheme. If we discover a change you didn’t tell us about, (including but not limited to meter exchanges, extensions, or reductions) we may inform the Authority, who will take any appropriate action. If this happens, we may withhold, adjust and/or recover your FiT Payments.

    15.2     You must tell us if you have an extension Commissioned post 15th January 2016 as you will not be eligible for FiT Payments

    15.3     If you change your Generation Unit(s) and it affects your Generation Tariff and/or Export Tariff then the change will take effect from the date the change happened. We’ll update the Central FiT Register and send you a new FiT Plan.

    15.4     If you’ve Decommissioned your Generation Unit(s) you must give us:

    15.4.1        written confirmation that the Generation Unit(s) has been fully decommissioned and will not be re-commissioned as a new FiT installation.

  16. Ending this Agreement

    16.1     You may leave the FiT scheme and end this Agreement at any time. To do this, send us written confirmation, with reasons, to: E.ON Energy Solutions Ltd, Caxton Road, Bedford, Bedfordshire, MK41 0EW. We’ll end this Agreement from the date we get your written confirmation. We may contact you to ask why you ended it.

    16.2     We may immediately end this Agreement if you break any terms in this Agreement or the Authority tells us they’ve removed you from the FiT scheme.

    16.3     We may immediately end this Agreement if the Government withdraws or materially changes the FiT scheme.

    16.4     We may end this Agreement if we cease to be a mandatory FiT Licensee and decide to exit the FiT scheme. We’d tell you about this no later than 6 weeks before we exit the FiT scheme.

     BSC The Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC) contains the governance arrangements for electricity balancing and settlement in Great Britain

     Central FiT Register is the register the Authority keeps and maintains to record details of the FiT scheme.

     Commissioned means two things about your Generation Unit(s):

    A  Qualified Person has done the necessary tests and procedures to make sure your Generation Unit(s) can run at its Declared Net Capacity (assuming that the relevant eligible low carbon energy source was available to it without interruption or limitation). At the time the Qualified Person did the tests, they followed the usual industry standards and practices for commissioning that type of Generation Unit(s).

    The Generation Unit(s) is connected to the Plant and can use its whole maximum output in a permitted way.

    Connected Person in relation to a FiT Generator or a Nominated Recipient, means any person connected to that person within the meaning of section 1122 of the Corporation Tax Act 2010.

    Declared Net Capacity is the maximum capacity at which someone can use a Generation Unit(s) for a sustained time without damaging it – minus the amount of electricity the Plant consumes (assuming it gets all the power it needs.)

    Decommissioned means you’ve had the entire Generation Unit(s) removed from the Site.

    Deemed Export means the amount of electricity you export to the Electricity Network (as the Secretary of State determines) when we can’t practically measure the exact amount. This applies only to Generation Unit(s) that are connected to the Electricity Network and have a total installed capacity of 30kW or lower.

    Deemed Export Payment is the amount of money we pay the Generator or Nominated Recipient. We calculate this payment based on your Generation Meter(s) readings as a percentage of the electricity created during that period.

    Electricity Network is an electricity supply system or electricity transmission system that the Authority regulates.

    Eligibility Date means the date from which your Generation Unit(s) qualifies for FiT Payments. For details see Clause 4.

    Eligible Installation means any plant on a site which is capable of small-scale low-carbon generation: and except as provided otherwise in the FiT Order all such plant on the same site which is capable of generating electricity from the same type of eligible low-carbon energy source is to be treated as a single eligible installation.

    Export Meter(s) means the meter (or meters) that measures how much electricity goes from your Generation Unit(s) to the Electricity Network.

    Export Payment means the amount of money a FiT Licensee (us, in this case) pays to the Generator or Nominated Recipient, calculated based on the Export Tariff and Meter Readings.

    Export Tariff is the rate we pay per kWh of electricity your Generation Unit(s) exports to the Electricity Network, as the Authority determines.
